An increased fetal DNA concentration in maternal plasma has been observed in placental pathological conditions associated with hypertension and preeclampsia. To confirm these data, we performed real-time quantitative PCR on the SRY gene in a group of physiological and pathological male-bearing pregnancies. In 78 physiological pregnancies, fetal DNA(More)
The authors considered a series of 13 patients undergone surgical operation for primary malignant lymphoma of digestive system, with gastric, gastro-jejunal, jejunal, ileal and colic localization. They examined diagnostic and therapeutic features and the follow-up data. According to literature, the authors remark the importance of roentgenology and(More)
Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) containing tamoxifen, a nonsteroidal antiestrogen used in breast cancer therapy, were prepared by microemulsion and precipitation techniques. Tamoxifen loaded SLNs seem to have dimensional properties useful for parenteral administration, and in vitro plasmatic drug release studies demonstrated that these systems are able to(More)
Several samples of polymeric micelles, formed by amphiphilic derivatives of PHEA, obtained by grafting into polymeric backbone of PEGs and/or hexadecylamine groups (PHEA-PEG-C(16) and PHEA-C(16)) and containing different amount of Tamoxifen, were prepared. All Tamoxifen-loaded polymeric micelles showed to increase drug water solubility. TEM studies provided(More)
Two new polymeric conjugates for specific liver targeting were prepared by conjugation of sugar moieties and antiviral drugs to alpha, beta-poly[N-2-(hydroxyethyl)-DL-aspartamide] (PHEA). PHEA-galactopyranosylphenylthiocarbamide-mono-O-succinylganciclovir (conjugate 7) and PHEA-mannopyranosylphenylthiocarbamide-O-succinylacyclovir (conjugate 8) were(More)
On the basis of the effects, demonstrated in vitro, of the thyroid hormones on the amino-acidic metabolism at cellular level, the Authors analysed the aminoacidogram of 15 thyreopathic patients. They remarked significant preoperative modifications of some amino-acids, coming back to standard values after operation. The authors think the preoperative(More)
